Speaking of Fabolous...

Hip-hop superstar Fabolous was shot outside a New York City nightclub Monday night and then arrested as he and his posse sped to a hospital shortly thereafter.

Skylar John Jackson, a.k.a. Fabolous ("So Into You", "Can't Let You Go"), was arrested after a shooting at NYC hotspot Justin's, which is owned by hip-hop mogul Diddy. early reports said that newly acquired Boston Celtics point guard & Brooklyn native Sebastian Telfair had been robbed of a $50,000 chain at the club earlier in the evening and he &/or members of his entourage may have been involved in the shooting. New updates claim that there is videotape of a Fabolous friend swiping the chain off of Telfair's neck and also of the shooting of the rapper.

Fabolous and 3 friends were arrested after they ran a red light and were pulled over en route to the hospital to treat his gunshot wound to the thigh. The group had numerous unregistered firearms in the vehicle, leading to the arrests.

New reports show that Telfair had left the scene before the shooting but that members of his party may have been directly involved.

Considering Telfair is coming off of 2 majorly disappointing seasons with Portland, marred by a gun charge when he was caught bringing a loaded handgun onto a Jailblazer charter from Logan in February, this incident doesn't bode well for Danny Ainge & Co. as the C's prepare to open the regular season on November 1st against the Hornets.

Stay tuned for more details- like whether Telfair gets the Tupac treatment.
